I would think it would be hard to justify replacing the Xtremegamer with an Xonar DX.
The slightly better DAC chip of the DX is off set by the fact the Xtremegamer's audio processor is considered by many to come with better FPS gaming features.
I would think it would be better to keep an eye out for a used (under $100) late model (Revision C) Ti-HD (Titanium HD) and use the Ti-HD with an external amplifier (Magni or other).
The Ti-HD's PCM1794 DAC chip is about the best DAC chip and op-amps you can get on a sound card.
